Have found out a little more information on my Abram line. my Gr gr grandfather John Abram came to US - Iowa about 1866 by way of Canada from England. It seems he may have come with his older sister Ann Abram abd her husband John Smith,both also born in England and a younger brother George Abram. John married Caroline Hayne b. 1850 in Ohio and had 3 children that I know ofBertha Armenta Abram ,(my gr grandmother), Charles Abram, may have died young and Walter O. Abram, who I believe married a Ethel May Dryden and had a daughter Elizabeth A. Abram. John's father Robert Abram shows up around 1880 in in Iowa living with daughter Ann Smith. John, Robert, George andAnn & John Smith, are buried in the State Center Cemetery, Iowa.
